Drafted my own pattern for the bag in 2 different sizes. Then I got all technical (for me anyway) and scanned my pattern pieces and wrote up step by step instructions with lots of pictures and made that into a PDF pattern so I could put it in my Etsy shop. Pattern available HERE.
I got one of the $1 fat quarters from Wal-Mart for Aly's. Abby picked out her Owl fabric from Hancock Fabrics. I like owls, but Abby LOVES owls. Anything to do with them, reading books with real facts about them, cartoon owls, clothes, literally anything. We found this fabric within 60 seconds of entering the store. I tried showing her some really cute fabric with birds in birdcages on it and all she said was "those are birds, not owls". That's Abby. There were several other cute owl fabrics, but she kept hugging this one tight saying she wanted it.
